According to Wikipedia, bread is one of the oldest prepared foods. Evidence from 30,000 years ago in Europe and Australia revealed starch residue on rocks used for pounding plants. It is possible that during this time, starch extract from the roots of plants, such as cattails and ferns, was spread on a flat rock, placed over a fire and cooked into a primitive form of flatbread. The world’s oldest evidence of bread-making has been found in a 14,500-year-old Natufian site in Jordan’s northeastern desert.
According to Julia Child ‘’One can never have enough butter’’. Well, I beg to differ, in my opinion, one can never have enough cheese. Vegan cheese, that is. Soft, hard, pungent, mild, fermented or not, you name it, cheese is that piece of comfort food that gives you an immediate sense of coziness.
If you are reading this then we are alike. We both love cooking. Well, not only cooking but food in all its variations. I use to say that cooking is like rearranging the flexible walls of reality, turn fantasy into reality and experience it with all five senses.
The world is obsessed with protein. Vegans are bombarded with questions about where they get their protein from. All the time. As annoying as this question is (no one cared about how you got your protein before you went vegan) is is a very common doubt between nonvegans and understandably so considering we live in a fast food meat and dairy dominated society.
It’s not unusual for larger honey producers to cut off the queen bee’s wings so that she can’t leave the colony or to have her artificially inseminated on a bee-sized version of the factory farm “rape rack.” When the keeper wants to move a queen to a new colony, she is carried with “bodyguard” bees, all of whom—if they survive transport—will be killed by bees in the new colony. Large commercial operations may also take all the honey instead of leaving the 60 pounds or so that bees need to get through the winter.
I have always been obsessed – I could use a little less dramatic adjective here but how I feel about mushrooms is a borderline obsession. Yes, one of many I have, all related to food and cooking, you’re right… But before any judgments, I will explain why…
Well, one of the facts that make mushrooms so fascinating to me is the fact that they cannot be classified either as plants or as animals. And they are most definitely not a hybrid between plants and animals, as some people like say mushrooms are.
These benefits of kimchi are helpful to persuade you in finally giving this spicy fermented napa cabbage a try. Kimchi is eaten by Koreans so much this food is often seen in Korean movies and television shows alike. In fact, did you know as a tribute to this vegetable, locals often say “kimchi” instead of “cheese” whenever they have pictures taken?
